For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
"Like a flower he comes forth and withers. He also flees like a shadow and does not remain.
You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep; In the morning they are like grass which sprouts anew.
A voice says, "Call out." Then he answered, "What shall I call out?" All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
